Leading the bunch, a surprising silver medal goes to Glutenous Minimus in the specialty beer category. This is a beer brewed with no gluten so that all may enjoy it. The specialty beer category had 34 entries, making it one of the toughest categories to be recognized in.
Two of our other beers also received awards in this international competition; Steamy Windows and Liberty One Porter each took bronze medals. Steamy Windows, our California Common style beer, won in the amber hybrid category, and Liberty One Porter won in the porter category. Incidentally, this is not the first award for the Porter, it previously took gold in this same competition (2010), and also gold (2009) and bronze (2011) as the base beer for Tart Cherry Porter.
In consideration of the beers that were fielded for this competition, literally from breweries all over the world, we are very proud of being considered amongst the best. Congratulations to all of the winners, and especially to all the Michigan breweries that were recognized.
